[Cambridge. King's College, The Chapel.] 62.
[Cambridge. King's College, The Chapel.] 62. [The original designer is believed to have been Richard Close, Fellow of the College, and Bishop of Lichfield. The first stone of the Chapel was laid in 1446 by Henry VI., but the stonework was not complete until 1515, and the high altar was set up in 1545, ninety-nine years after the laying of the foundation stone. No building of the same date in England is better known that this Chapel, which is in many respects the most beautiful and most complete in this country. It is the standard specimen of that period of English pointed architecture to which the name of 'perpendicular' has been applied. The design is most striking and combines richness with simplicity of decoration, which justifies its being regarded as the pride and glory of Cambridge architecture. The workmanship throughout is of the most careful finish and of the boldest execution. The beautiful Italian scene was set up when Anne Boleyn was queen, and has her initials together with those of Henry VIII. It was the College of the poet, Rupert Brooke.]

[Cambridge. King's College, Gateway.] 57.
[Cambridge. King's College, Gateway.] 57. [King's College was founded on its present site in 1440 by Henry VI., a second site being purchased in 1443-49, the King's intention being to unite the College exclusively with the school at Eton which he had recently founded. The influence of the royal founder lasted for many years, and up to 1850 undergraduates of the College received their degree without undergoing the University examinations. For many years it was the most unpopular college in Cambridge by reason of the privileges granted by the King and its immunity from University control. From the very beginning the King had intended the foundation to be regarded as separate from other colleges, at least in degree if not in kind. The gateway to the College is of elaborate but tasteless design, although at the time of its erection it was highly praised. It consists of a rectangular tower and dome 82ft. high standing in the centre of the four pairs of turrets ending in three spires with small pinnacles at each corner of the building. The whole design seems incongruous and lacking in dignity, standing as it does near to and overshadowed by the magnificence of the chapel.]

[n.d. c.1860.]
Chromolithograph, printers proof. 380 x 280mm. 15 x 11".
The Front Gate of St John's College, Cambridge, was completed in 1516. The carving is of the coat of arms of the Foundress, Lady Margaret Beaufort. The curious beasts on either side are yales, mythical animals having elephants' tails, antelopes' bodies and goats' heads, with horns. Above is a statue of St. John the Evangelist: at his feet is an eagle, the traditional symbol of the Saint. He holds a poisoned chalice, with a snake representing the legend that he charmed the poison out in the form of a serpent and then drank safely. The tower was built by William Swayne, the master mason who was also employed at King's College Chapel; here he produced a fine fan vault on a much smaller scale. The heavy wooden gates date from 1665, and have traditional linen-fold panels.

[Cambridge. St. John's College, Bridge of Sighs.] 58. [The Bridge of Sighs connects the main buildings of St. John's College to the new court. It was designed by Thomas Rickman, an interesting man who started life as a grocer. The date of the building is early nineteenth century. The design of the structure was suggested by the Bridge of Sighs at Venice, which has sometimes given rise to unkind comparisons. It is certainly less graceful than Wren's bridge further down the river, but it nevertheless has charm and distinction. It is a single span, covered over, which gives it the appearance of a cloister; the sides are pierced with open perpendicular windows, the gratings being intended to prevent any nocturnal escape from the College. Only one under-graduate is known to have managed to squeeze between the bars.]

[Cambridge. St. John's College, Gateway.] 55.
[Cambridge. St. John's College, Gateway.] 55. [The building of this College was commenced in 1516 by John Fisher, Bishop of Rochester and Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church. Fisher is one of the most renowned of all Cambridge men, being noted fro his charity to all men and particularly to the sick and destitute. His firm refusal to recognise Henry's divorce led to his arrest and execution in 1535. Thw tower which today forms the main entrance to the College is a delightful example of what may be achieved by the skillful use of red brick. The groining is of stone, as are also the elaborate decorations. In the centre a richly canopied niche contains the statue of St. John the Evangelist, holding his usual emblems, the chalice and serpent, and at his feet is the evangelist's symbol, the eagle. This statue was set up in 1662, and immediately above the gate is to be seen Lady Margaret's shield, the three lions of England and the three lilies of France, surmounted by two yales, beasts that in the zoology of heralds form the sub-species of the antelope.]

[Cambridge. Trinity College, The Fountain.] 56.
[Cambridge. Trinity College, The Fountain.] 56. [Trinity College was founded in 1546 by Henry VIII. The great court is best known in the whole of Cambridge because of its size and because of the character added to it by the Fountain. The Fountain was built in 1602 by Thomas Neville, the then Master, and rebuilt with few changes in 1716. Its ornament agrees with that on the porch of the contemporary age. Until fairly recently it served the practical purpose of providing all the College staircases with water, the water coming by conduit from a spring more than a mile away. Research shows that as far back as 1345, the Franciscans purchased pieces of land 2ft. broad for this conduit, which was annexed in part by King's Hall in 1439, but eventually confirmed to Trinity by Henry VIII. The Fountain takes the eye instantly because of its interest as a late Elizabethan conceit, but also because of its skilful design and rightness of scale. This prevents one noticing how small and relatively unimpressive are the surrounding buildings compared with the vast area they enclose.]
